My BBC R4 Drama, THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID, starring Lia Williams and Siân Phillips, produced and directed by Abigail le Fleming, won Best Radio Drama in the Writers' Guild Awards 2018.

Recent projects include: short film, BRITISH PEOPLE, commissioned by THE UNCERTAIN KINGDOM (20 films about the UK in 2019), shooting August 2019; site-specific live audio drama CITIZENS OF NOWHERE? for Chinese Arts Now/Beijing 707N Theatre, London Southbank Centre, Duddell's London, Lakeside Arts, Nottingham, & Edinburgh Fringe, 2018-19; comedy drama RIOT GIRLS: MALE ORDER, starring Belinda Lang and Carolyn Pickles, for BBC Radio 4 (produced by Emma Harding, TX 20 February 2018); HAMARI YAADAIN (OUR MEMORIES), a verbatim short play for EVERY THIRD MINUTE FESTIVAL, Leeds Playhouse (March 2018 & community tour); and two short films for LAMDA, SCHLAF NICHT and TWENTY-FOUR HOURS (both on YouTube).

Writer in Residence, Theatr Clwyd: August/September 2019.

I started my career in development, as Script Executive at Zenith Productions, where I worked across a slate of film and TV drama and script edited series such as HAMISH MACBETH (BBC), BODYGUARDS (ITV), and FIRM FRIENDS II (ITV). For Ecosse/BBC, I co-created the series McCREADY & DAUGHTER (starring Lorcan Cranitch & Patsy Palmer) and became a contract writer on EASTENDERS, where I worked on storylines including the domestic abuse of Little Mo Morgan and her trial for attempted murder. I subsequently wrote for CASUALTY, HEARTBEAT, and THE BILL.

In 2013, I was selected for the Royal Court Theatre's first Over 26s Writers' Group; my play, EXHUMATION, was workshopped there in 2015, with associate director Lucy Morrison and cast including Anna Calder-Marshall.  

My spec feature, ALTER EGO, won an invitation from French screenwriters' association, Maison des Scénaristes, to attend their International Screenwriters' Pavilion at Cannes 2015.  I was also selected for Filmonomics 2016, a Bird's Eye View/BFI/Creative Skillset feature film development/mentoring scheme.

Based on my long-term experiences with my mother (now in residential care), I blog about dementia - '(Dementia Just Ain't) Sexy' - and write and speak widely on this issue (outlets including BBC Woman's Hour, Victoria Derbyshire, The Guardian, The Times, and BBC Wales).
